Danileigh trended online most of Thursday, after previewing a new single titled “Yellow Bone” via her social media.
“YELLOW BONE THATS WHAT HE WANT,” she captioned the post.
Social media felt that Danileigh’s song, elevating the status of light-skinned women, was backward for 2021 and — and proceeded to drag her… because Danileigh isn’t even a Black woman.
Furthermore, many folks thought the song was a diss to DaBaby’s baby mama, who is a darker-skinned Black woman.
After being ripped to shreds on social media, Danileigh tried to defend herself instead of issuing an apology.
“Why I can’t make a song for my light skin baddies??” wrote DaniLeigh. “Why y’all think I’m hating on other colors when there are millions of songs speaking on all types… Why y’all so sensitive & take it personal… Gahhhh damn.”
She then offered an apology of sorts via Twitter:
“Congratulations y’all gotta another thing to say about me when u hate … 👍🏽 it’s all good .. only God can “cancel” me… that sh*t don’t mean sh*t to me bc the people around me are the ones that know my heart and intention and real life … I’m sorry if I offended u,” she wrote.
